Lisa Vanderpump condemned the actions that led to the firing of several “Vanderpump Rules” actors from Bravo, but she still believes that her former employee is not racist.
“What they are doing is not right at all, but do I think they are racists? The former “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star said in a “Podcast” on Monday. “Because I have a lot of differences. People are working for me, so they have been working for many years. “
Van der Pomp, 60, reiterated: “Do I think this is racist behavior? Not at all. I just think it’s a bad timing, stupid and ignorant.”
In June, Bravo announced that they would fire Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute. It was alleged that Faith Stowers, a black actor in the popular reality show, called the police.
After racist tweets surfaced on the Internet, season 8 novices Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni were also removed from the Internet.
With the resurgence of the black life issues movement, tensions increased, triggering dismissals.
Vanderpump told “Him & Her”
She added: “I think everything was so red and swollen at the time, but this is also the accumulation of what she did.” “This is not only a sentence, but I think she actively faces the entire faith situation and calls are not the way to solve the problem. .”
Last year, it was revealed that Schroeder almost commented on her now cancelled “Straight Up With Stassi” podcast, commenting on the lack of diversity in the awards show.
“Why Asians are not like’we have no representatives’. She said in the last episode why Native Americans and Latinos are not like “we have no representatives.” “Every time they are angry, everyone must go beyond themselves. Only then can they be happy. “They” refer to black people.
Van der Pomp claimed that she was very naive to many of the comments made by actors outside of reality shows.
She said: “This story has never been heard before, and I’m sure everything they talked about at the time, they all found it interesting… but of course I have never heard of it.” “I have never heard any of their interviews frankly.”
The restaurant owner admitted that she hopes to see the actor’s personal growth after her dismissal on TV.
She said: “I don’t like this culture of cancellation.” “Of course, I do think that sometimes people should be punished, there should be punitive consequences, and actions taken do have consequences, but I think people can learn from mistakes. Growing up. I did, and I think live TV is a good place to learn and observe growth.”
In June last year, Andy Cohen, the head of Bravo, said that he supported the network’s decision to abandon several “Vanderp Rule” actors because of their racist behavior.
He said on the SIRIUS XM radio program: “I absolutely support Bravo’s decision.” “I think this is the right decision.”
